The Future of Virtual Health and Care–report
The report delivers a roadmap that describes which policies have enabled a rapid uptake of virtual health and care during the pandemic, to serve as recommendations to help governments and other stakeholders ensure that virtual health and care drives access and equity, rather than entrenching or exacerbating existing divides. Thee is also an analysis of virtual health and care policies in 23 countries. The Working Group is chaired by the Novartis Foundation and the World Health Organization.
76% of patients want virtual care visits to be a standard part of their care regimen
